New Works By Mary Lum on View in New York
An exhibitions of small-scale photo and acrylic collages by visual arts faculty member Mary Lum opens October 23 at Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York.
The exhibition, Sixteen Collages, is derived from Lum's experience wandering the streets of Paris, London, Berlin, and New York. The collages combine excised fragments from advertising posters, Lumʼs own photographs, and planes of bright color in varying combinations that allude to the transitory state of urban space.
"The combination turns out to be breathtaking," says critic Emily Hall of Lum's work, "Here is modernismʼs orderly progression upended by Escherʼs splendid illogic."
